Have you been to New Orleans? If you answered no… you NEED to put it on your list!
I recently went for my first time… during Mardis Gras!
I didn’t know what to expect and to be honest, I thought it might actually be a bit too crazy for my liking.
I WAS DEAD WRONG! It is now one of my favorite cities in America.
It is dripping with culture and I took part in the Mardi Gras festivities with my friends who live there, so I got a local experience not a touristy one.
And yes… I did head to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter and while it was great (and pretty nuts!) , I spent most my time there outside of this area and was continually blown away by this incredible city.
I did go to Café du Monde though for the beignets… which were pretty amazing.
It was a cold night… and I wore my Chrysalis Cardi… needless to say I left with powdered sugar all over it!
Well worth it though! And New Orleans… I will definitely be back!
